Packages with (possible) problems in their site-init files

require, load, or load-library statements

From elisp-common.eclass: Commands as “load-library” or “require” bloat the editor as they are loaded on every startup. When having a lot of Emacs support files, users may be annoyed by the start-up time.

There is also bug #174469 as a tracker for these issues.

The following packages have unconditional require, load, or load-library statements in their site-init files. It should be checked if this is necessary, of if it could be replaced, e.g. by autoload.

Note
If a pre-generated autoload file is distributed with the package, it may be necessary to remove and regenerate it, since it may have been made by a different Emacs version.

Should be fixed:

require, load-library, etc. should be replaced by the following:

cedet
work in progress
ocaml-mode
intermediate solution only, uses eval-after-load
fixed upstream Caml bug 4429, but name of hook functions changed, so site-file must be updated for next version

Cantfix / Later

bbdb
INSTALL and Info say that (require 'bbdb) is mandatory
Previous versions had autoloads, this doesn't work in 2.35 because of keymap errors
crypt++
Documentation says: Do not bother trying to autoload this package; it uses find-file and write-file hooks and thus should be loaded the first time you visit any sort of file.
Furthermore: Other packages that append to `write-file-hooks' should ![...] be loaded before this one. Should the number of crypt++'s site file be increased?

Status unknown – to be checked:

blogmax
semi
sumibi
